Twilight Capitalism

The Economic Dimension


From: Twilight Capitalism


In this chapter, the authors make the case that capitalism — once a formidable force for innovation and the development of productivity (not to mention brutal exploitation, violence and suffering) — has lost all its redeeming qualities. In its twilight phase, it runs on deception, dispossession and fumes.
